Mandatory workshops for students applying to US colleges or universities

Students who are considering applications to colleges in the United States must attend two mandatory workshops this spring. In order to provide maximum flexibility, these sessions will be offered in two formats—Wednesday mornings or Thursday evening.

The first session on Wednesday, April 24 at 8:30 a.m. in Room 140 will provide an overview of the US college system and application process. We shall discuss which students tend to be a good fit for US schools and review the type of research required in order to pick an appropriate program and ensure a strong application.

The follow-up workshop on Wednesday, May 1 at 8:30 a.m. in Room 140 will focus on the characteristics of a successful personal essay.

Students who have other commitments on Wednesday mornings should plan to attend the evening session on Thursday, May 2, 6-8 p.m. in Room 127. This workshop will include both the overview and the personal statement sessions. A light supper will be provided.

Please register with Ms. Berndsen by Tuesday, April 23 if you plan to attend these workshops.
